After signing the document, u still can back off from the contract. If Im correct, we are protected by consumer's right act where by there is a cool down period which u can consider to back off from the deal.

 

Pls read the contract carefully!! The cool down period is stated clearly.

 

They cant do anything to u & u can seek yr deposit back

no they dun. I bought my spec 1 from them. wanna sell. go back 2 weeks back.

 

they asked to clear off any outstanding if there is accordingly to e market price of ya bike. and also i was asked to sign a "pact" with them that i can only sell my bike back to southern or any other private buyer. if to any bike shop, have to fine $300 on top of all outstanding debts.

 

therefore to ans ya qn, u have to clear off all outstanding (Installments left minus e price they are taking in for ya bike) den can transfer to another buyer. no COI + transfer.

Hi peeps, after reading all the nasty comments, i feel a little fortunate that i didn't experience anything like that at new southern. i went to quite a few shops before making my purchase. service wise i feel new southern is one of the better ones. ah koon attended to me btw. he dun push a particular model to u (coz maybe higher commission). he sort of tell u pros and cons etc.

 

it might be a little pricey, maybe by 100 bucks. but for the assurance, service and invaluable advise it's quite worth it lah. he did the break down for me quite clearly for me, so i assume there's no so called hidden cost. interest is not compounded too, but i realise that's the practise for alot of bike shops.

 

workshop wise no comments, never go before. i'm a planet supporter.

hmmm,......

 

if you ask me, i wont recomend this shop at all. i also got my FT plate SP from there.........

 

the outlook of the bike look good when i bought it, and after a few months, i spent quite abit to clear up the interior

 

worse of all, i wanted to do a full cash for my bike after a few installments,

 

pls be adv that they charge an extra $300 for paying in full earlier than the loan period.... so pissed, want to upgrade but unhappy they will earn another $300 from me... haha... so i am slowly paying my installment off.....

 

so pls ask about the financing term when buying from them.......:mad:

new southern not that bad.. it's southern that's really bad.. think they come out new southern to get back some trust.. but southern is bad.. really really bad.. ever once went there to ask something.. before i even open my mouth, the mech just put his hand in front of my face and tell me to wait half an hour before asking him anything.. he too busy to entertain me.. is that the way to treat customer?? at least listen to what i have to ask mahz.. what i wanted is a 5 minutes job and i have to wait for half an hour before i can speak up?? after that i never go there for any kind of "services"..

a non-biased view from me

--------------------------------

new southern motors

trade in my runner for a srad bumbleebee. ah koon attended to me. quite a nice guy .. nv push me on a particular bike model. asked a few models, he patiently informed me of the pros and cons of each bike that i had pointed. when it comes to either a TL or the SRAD .. he gave me the full info on both bikes and let me have my choice .. but in all fairness, he did not even pressure me one bit on which bike to go for. even shared me his personal view on both bikes and asked me to make my choice after careful considerations. after all the paperwork was done, as usual .. one month's warranty.

southern motors

there was a few issues with the bike .. but within the one month, everytime that i went down , about 5 times, i was promptly attended to and the problems were rectified. even once when i came late at 7.45pm ... after they had closed, one of the mech went with me to open up their storage place to let me have my bike. in all fairness, their services ...to me, is quite :thumb:

 

so far .. i have no problems with them ..
